Christmas Cards with the Stash

So, in keeping with my theme for Christmas projects of using supplies that I already own, I pulled out some sequins from Doodlebug to use on this Christmas tree. I also used some Basic Grey paper that was made for Michael's. I really like this set of their paper. Traditional colors, but fun modern/shabby themes. Even though there are sequins and beads, it still seems like it needs a little something. I'm thinking about adding a couple of spots of red glitter also. What do you think? Add the glitter or leave it as is?

Christmas cards with Felt

I'm really loving working with felt lately, and specifically cutting it with die shapes. Now I am getting quite the stash of felt going. I bought some good quality from the Heather Bailey, as well as Papertrey Ink and Felt on the Fly. The 100% wool really cuts like butter. Anyway, here is a card I made with some of that felt, some Stampin' Up Christmas paper and some Making Memories epoxy buttons that come from the large Christmas embellishment stash that I have. So happy to be using so much of it on projects! I hope you enjoy the card!
